This is the beach that you will never get tired of coming back to. The water is very clear and the ambiance is nice, if I ever go back to El Nido this is the first beach I will go to.

After all, this is the closest beach to El Nido town and a place worth visiting. There are quite a lot of tourists, but then again there are services and cozy domes by the sea. You should check the place and form your own opinion. The sun shines here and you will surely find your place on the beach sand!

During a long weekend getaway, my friends and I decided to visit El Nido, and one of the highlights on our itinerary was witnessing the breathtaking sunset at Vanilla Beach. At Vanilla Beach, you'll find various stalls, including fast-food chains like McDonald's, arcade stalls for kids to enjoy, spa houses, and high-end restaurants. There are also resorts nearby, with the renowned Maremegmeg Hotel and Resort being one of the prominent options.

Vanilla Beach is as beautiful as the famous Nacpan Beach in the northern part of El Nido. Both beaches share the same pristine white sand, but what sets Vanilla Beach apart is its proximity to the town. Moreover, access to the beach is free, and you can spread your towels or picnic blankets anywhere you like. No matter what you're wearing, you won't feel out of place among fellow beachgoers. The shoreline is relatively shallow, making it suitable for non-swimmers, while swimmers can enjoy deeper areas not far away. Of course, the highlight here is the mesmerizing sunset, which adds an extra layer of magic to the whole experience.

A friendly reminder to those planning to visit: The most budget-friendly dining option is McDonald's, and it's essential to keep a close eye on your valuables to avoid any mishaps. If you're heading to El Nido, be sure to include Vanilla Beach on your itinerary. It's an experience you won't want to miss.

As recommended by the owner of the accommodation we're staying in, as per her Vanilla Beach is a must to visit for a sunset view, and as quite as expected it's nice! After enduring a 12-hour travel from our point of origin to El Nido it's kinda relaxing to see the scenic view of the setting sun in addition to the touch of the sea water under our feet.

Though it seems there's more to this place before (maybe) the pandemic hit because there's a lot of shops or stalls that's closed already. The effect of the recent pandemic is visible (well, I guess like any other country like ours, it takes time, right?) but hopefully all soon be as good as new, in God's perfect time.

There's a lot of resto or bar along the beach as well, for sure you can find one that suits you. And since I was traveling with family with young kids, chicken & burger is always a charm - It's good there's McDonald's. Where the crews are very polite and accommodating. Thanks a lot.
